The parents of an American woman who was killed in ISIS captivity last year are calling out the international medical charity Doctors Without Borders, saying the organization refused to help negotiate for their daughter's release.
Kayla Mueller was abducted by ISIS in 2013 while traveling in Aleppo, Syria. Her parents unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate with her captors until Mueller was killed in an airstrike in February 2015.
Mueller wasn't working for Doctors Without Borders at the time, but she was traveling with a technician hired by the group to fix their communication equipment. Mueller's parents told ABC the organization didn't do enough to try to free their daughter.
